Today's card was a winner using the sketch challenge from Paper Pals Arts .
It was a bit difficult for me to add that many layers going in opposite directions so I toned it down a bit by using only a couple of colors! I also changed out the word from Friend to Happy Birthday on the center image. I guess the design team liked it!!!! Thanks PPA!
I have a confession to make, I used a retired set on this card. It has been tucked away for a long time and has always been one of my favorites. I only have three retired sets that my heart could not give away and Touch of Nature is one of them. The butterfly in that set is my favorite of all the Stampin' Up butterflies and if you haven't noticed yet all the images from that set are used in the NEW Designer Series paper Botanical Gazette found in the NEW Occassions Mini! So you know my heart went pitter patter when I saw it! I hope you have a great Monday, enjoy!
